From June 1-4, Diana Roig will participate in The Other Art Fair at the Brooklyn Expo Centre. Following sixteen successful installments across the UK and Australia, The Other Art Fair makes it's debut in the creative heart of New York City on June 1-4 2017, presenting 130 talented emerging artists to an audience of art buyers and ethusiasts. Each artist has been handpicked by a Selection Committee of art experts, so visitors can add to their collection with the confidence that they are buying from the very best and most promising emerging artists.
Born in 1982 Mar del PLata, Argentina. Lives and works in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. ‘The mind is like a richly woven tapestry in which the colors are distilled from experiences of the senses, and the design drawn from the convolutions of the intellect.’ (Carson McCullers, American writer, 1917-1967.) My collective work is a study of the transformative nature within the process of painting. Nurtured and driven by personal experiences, altered states of consciousness and an urge to communicate by the act of painting. Translated into abstraction, color and form. I am influenced by natural growth, biological processes and rhizomatic shapes. I also have a great fascination for evolution, survival of the fittest, new species, transformations and perception. Each painting, in a way, tells its own story and becomes a framework for perceptual faculties that address our associative mind. I strive to blur the lines between abstraction and figuration by subconsciously suggesting forms and primordial organic shapes. I invite the viewer to make his or her own image; an unique experience distilled from their own frames of reference; to create a new world of their own.
